Scholarship recipients must reapply for these need-based scholarships each year by renewing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and CSS Profile; renewal eligibility is determined each summer for the following academic year. The awards are typically not awarded for the winter or summer course sessions. Failure to meet the minimum GPA requirement, adhere to Providence College rules and regulations, or participate in diversity initiatives may result in the forfeiture of the scholarship.
